It's been a while since I've been here and somehow it didn't seem to be as good as several years ago. The food was tasty but just okay. The service varied to friendly to grumpy. I may try it again in a few months but not likely.

I've been here several times and I always enjoy. The curries are great whatever is in that green chimmy-churry sauce is fantastic and goes great with the grilled steak. Everything I've had has been good, which is rare since I'm usually quite critical at restaurants.

My daughter had the yellow curry, and I had the red curry with stir fry.... both were delicious! Fresh ingredients, the meals... More

The restaurant is lively and loud. Food for me was your typical Thai with fresh ingredients. I felt the seafood dishes needed some flavor and the calamari was tough and vegetable were not cooked enough for my taste. Overall the value was good and the service was good.
